Build Your Emergency Bag Class and Demonstration

Everyone is invited! This event is part of our recognition of September’s National Preparedness Month sponsored by FEMA and CERT, Community Emergency Response Team.

A variety of emergency kits, go-bags, and bug-out bags will be on display and explained. You will be provided with lists of items to include, sources for equipment, and 10 mistakes to avoid when preparing an emergency kit for your family. A basic, 3-day kit is a necessity for every family. Come to class and learn some money-saving tips.

This is a learning opportunity for people with little or no emergency preparedness experience and for those who have had their emergency kits for years who would like to compare and update their knowledge.

No registration required.
